Overwatch Dark Ride.

Make it a dueling style dark ride where there are two tracks for each team where you see each other occasionally and compete for the win. Make it slightly variable and dynamic. Allow each person to choose a hero. Whoever gets the most points gets play of the game, etc. Would be super great

What about a B&M wing coaster, but:
-The vest part of the restraint is removed, leaving only the bars on the sides. (i.e. Family Inverted Coaster)
-It is over 200 feet and has no inversions, making it a hyper coaster.

I am annoying as f**k!!!

I have a crazy idea, Vekoma starts pumping out some great rides. Only it is no longer a crazy idea, it is the truth!
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

I'd be absolutely shocked if this hasn't been discussed, but I've always thought the concept of a "transportation" coaster would be interesting; build a coaster that has multiple stations.

For example, you have a station at the front of the park, and one at the back of the park. Board in front, get off in back. If you want to ride the second half, it has it's own line. The 2 portions could be made in contrasting styles. Riding from the front of a park to the back of a park on a hyper sounds so much more appealing than walking or taking a train.

I know there would be some logistical issues with load times and station synchronization, things of that nature.

Would love to see a Stranger Things themed ride put into a park. Maybe Universal could build it?

Some aspects were recycled and are now InvadN BGW. The rest is gathering cobwebs and growing moss. Likely nothing will happen until the chain recovers some more from Blackfish.

Nothing to the coaster itself unless Busch Gardens Tampa decides to demolish the ride for something, but my guess is the trains got sent to Busch Gardens Williamsburg for Invadr.
Nobody knows a lot about Darien Lake like me! ;)
